Pakistan rejected Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s terrorism-related allegations against Pakistan.
The Foreign Office spokesperson said that Pakistan had shared concrete evidence of India’s state sponsorship of terrorism within Pakistan with the international community.
“India uses terrorism as an instrument of state policy. This year alone, India has been involved in terrorist attacks in Johar Town, Lahore and against Chinese and Pakistani workers at Dasu,” he said.
He also criticised the ruling BJP party in India as being anti-Muslim and anti-minority.
“India’s so-called surgical strikes and ill-conceived misadventure in Balakot in February 2019 were exposed as based on nothing but lies and deceit.” He continued.
“Our desire for peace notwithstanding, Pakistan will resolutely defend itself against any aggressive Indian designs,” he resolved.
